Stories for Beginning Braille Readers by Ann Gelles

This series of stories was created to help Braille students focus on the alphabet characters and contractions before introducing them to more complex Braille signs. Alphabet exclusive contractions include n for not, w for will, gd for good, ll for little, fr for friend and m for more. Since r and z are troublesome letters for most beginning braille readers, you will notice that man of the main characters begin with the letters r or z. Some stories are imaginary and other stories are about real animal friends. A comprehension test is provided for each story.

These stories can also be listened to on the computer or an MP3 player.
